I agree. Although I don't think everybody will.

I'm afraid it's not that simple. Counterexample:

When I was shopping for a new parachute rig, one of the manufacturers I was
interested in turned out to have a Flash-only website. I could of course
have decided not to buy there because their website sucks, but when it
comes to equipment that's supposed to be going to save my life hundreds of
times I'd much rather base the decision on the quality of the product than
on the technical soundness of a website, thank you :-)

I don't mean to ridicule your principles, I merely mean to point out that
in my opinion it's not always as black and white as you make it seem.


All right, that does it Bill [Donahue]. I'm pretty sure that killing Jesus
is not very Christian.
